Announcement   Greetings sock monkey fans, and welcome to my shop!
I can change any monkey with buttons to a button-less version by swapping hard parts for securely sewn on felt pieces -- just ask! I have a variety of colors and patterns of socks, so if you're looking for something in particular, please feel free to convo me :-).

Absolutely gorgeous! Bought this for my niece and she loves it. Well made, fast delivery and it was easy to swap out the buttons for felt. I'm very pleased and highly recommend.

About

Megan's sock monkeys - quirky and colorful sock monkey creations

Hello, and thanks for checking out my shop!

I hand make sock monkeys of all shapes and sizes. I look for socks with colorful and interesting patterns and always like to give my monkeys some extra flair like a little heart or an exciting vintage button badge. All sock monkeys in my shop are shown with button eyes, but if you'd like to gift one to a younger child let me know, and I can replace all button decorations for flat, sewn on felt patches.

I try to list new items several times a week, so check back often for new stock! I'm also available for multiples, repeats of sold orders, or custom orders, so feel free to send me a message whenever :-).

Hello from the smallest sock monkey factory in Los Angeles! My name is Megan and I learned how to sew by fixing up old clothes I found in thrift stores. My awesome sister Katherine taught me how to make sock monkeys and I haven't looked back since!

A little about my "operation": I do all my sewing either by hand or on my mom's vintage sewing machine (which is older than me!). I do have a cat, but I store all my crafting supplies and finished products in my closet, which he does not have access to. I also try very hard to keep him away from my projects, both for their safety and his (I can't imagine what would happen if he got into my sewing box full of buttons and needles -- yikes!). I can't promise that a stray hair will never make its way into one of my packages, but in general I keep a clean house.

I think communication is central to customer service, so never hesitate to convo or e-mail me. Sometimes e-mails and convos can get lost or eaten up by the internet gnomes, so if you contact me and I do not respond within a day or two, please do contact me again (the easiest way is via the "contact" link in my profile).

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
Payment
I accept PayPal and credit cards through directly through Etsy. Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns regarding payment. And also note that you can use your credit card to check out as a guest on PayPal, even if you do not have a PayPal account!
Shipping
All my listed shipping prices are for USPS first class mail. I always try to ship within a day or two of payment, but definitely let me know if you have a timeline for when you would like to receive your package. Priority mail is available upon request, for an additional charge (convo me for a quote).

International shipping: Please contact me if you'd like a rough estimate (based on my experience and the wind patterns that day) of shipping times. I can't guarantee delivery by a certain date on international purchases, but I will do my best. Please note that buyers are responsible for all customs duties and import taxes.
Customers in Italy: Please allow up to 45 days for delivery.
Refunds and Exchanges
I would like all my customers to be happy with their items, so if you have any issues with your purchase, please let me know so we can work something out.
Additional policies and FAQs
I love to do custom orders! Please let me know if you have a specific idea in mind, and I'd be happy to work with you. I have a very large "sockpile" (stockpile + sock pile .. get it? haha, sorry), so if you want a specific color or design, just ask because I might have it or know where to find something like it.
Also - if you see an item that you'd like with a little tweaking, don't hesitate to ask! I can always swap out/remove chest "badges" or change out buttons for sewn-on felt pieces if you'd like to give a monkey to a younger child. Any monkey with felt eyes will also get a color-coordinating felt heart on his chest, unless otherwise specified.
